GENERAL  REVIEW 


Hon.  William  S.   Jackson,  President  of  the  Board  of  Trade 
of  the  City  of  Chicago: 

Sir: — Herewith  you  will  please  find  report  of  the  Board  of 
Trade  of  the  City  of  Chicago  for  the  year  ended  December 
31,    1905. 

The  year  1905  closes  with  a  record  of  general  prosperity  in 
all  departments  of  business  throughout  the  states.  The  crops 
of  1904  were  abundant  and  poured  into  the  lap  of  the  nation  an 
immense  wealth.  The  official  estimate  of  the  value  of  the  prod- 
ucts of  the  farm  for  that  year  was  $4,900,000,000.  This  tremen- 
dous amount  furnished  employment  to  countless  hands,  a  steady 
and  strong  demand  for  merchandise  of  every  sort,  funds  for  mon- 
eyed institutions,  incentives  to  enterprise  on  every  hand,  and  that 
which  is  of  supreme  importance  —  confidence  that  all  business 
obligations  would  be  promptly  discharged.  That  confidence 
was  strengthened  by  a  well  grounded  impression  that  in  spite  of 
a  widespread  prosperity  and  ample  funds,  business  was  con- 
ducted on  the  whole  with  caution. 

A  series  of  remarkably  prosperous  years  has  not  debauched 
the  public  mercantile  mind.  This  general  feeling  of  steadiness  and 
confidence  in  financial  and  industrial  circles  was  not  only  undis- 
turbed as  the  months  of  the  year  passed,  but  the  situation  became 
stronger,  as  indications  pointed  to  the  crops  of  1905  as  unpre- 
cedented in  value.  Even  then,  strange  to  say,  there  appeared 
no  disposition  to  abandon  the  safe  path  in  monetary  and  com 
mercial  affairs. 

CHICAGO    in    the    LEAD. 

Chicago  has  maintained  its  ascendency  among  the  great 
food  markets  of  the  world.  Her  receipts  of  wheat,  corn,  oats, 
rye,  barley  and  flour  in  its  wheat  equivalent,  aggregate  296,- 

■  .   XIII    ■- 


XIV 

428,100  bushels,  which  is  an  increase  of  31,000,000  bushels 
over  corresponding  receipts  during  the  year  1904;  her  shipments 
of  these  articles  during  the  year  aggregate  212,862,238  bushels, 
var5dng  slightly  from  the  corresponding  figures  for  1904.  Thus 
it  may  be  seen  that  Chicago  handled  during  the  year  about 
509,000,000  bushels  of  grain,  counting  flour  in  its  wheat  equi- 
valent. 

The  number  of  hogs  received  during  the  year  is  8,319,690, 
of  cattle  3,410,469,  and  of  sheep  4,736,558,  showing  an  increase 
in  the  number  of  hogs  of  533,149,  of  cattle  151,284,  and  of 
sheep  231,938  over  like  receipts  during  the  year  1904.  The 
number  of  hogs  shipped  during  the  year  is,  in  round  numbers, 
2,000,000,  of  cattle  1,400,000,  and  of  sheep  1,356,000,  showing 
an  increase  in  the  number  of  hogs  shipped  of  400,000,  of  cattle 
84,000,  and  a  decrease  in  the  number  of  sheep  of  6,400. 

GREAT     MEAT     MARKET. 

Our  receipts  of  meats,  cured  and  "other  meats,"  aggregate 
634,785,888  pounds,  as  against  408,426,000  pounds  received 
during  the  year  1904;  of  lard  84,653,195  pounds,  as  against 
54,549,592  pounds  received  during  the  year  1904;  of  cheese 
85,972,114  pounds,  as  against  91,000,000  pounds  received  dur- 
ing the  year  1904;  and  of  butter  271,914,803  pounds,  as  against 
249,024,146  pounds  received  during  1904. 

Our  shipments  of  cured  and  "other  meats"  aggregate  about 
1,865,314,566  pounds,  and  of  lard  405,629,825  pounds,  showing 
an  increase  of  141,593,660  pounds  of  cured  and  other  meats, 
and  68,839,862  of  lard  over  the  corresponding  shipments  of  1904. 

Our  receipts  of  hay  aggregate,  in  round  numbers,  245,600 
tons,  which  are  nearly  the  same  as  the  receipts  of  1904.  The 
local  demand  absorbs  nearly  our  entire  supply,  our  shipments 
being  only  about  12,000  tons.  This  trade  throughout  the  year 
was  very  satisfactory,  both  with  regard  to  prices  and  quality. 

PREGNANT    WITH     MEANING. 

What  this  enormous  volume  of  business  means  in  all  its 
ramifications,  to  railroads  and  steamship  lines,  to  warehouses, 
to  banks,  to  insurance  offices,  to  the  laborer,  to  employes  in 
various  industries,  one  can  scarcely  comprehend.     Indeed,  the 


XV 

marketing  of  the  farm  products  of  the  great  Valley  of  the  Mis- 
sissippi sets  in  profitable  and  harmonious  motion,  directly  and 
indirectly,  the  wheels  of  industry  and  commerce  from  one  end 
of  the  country  to  the  other;  it  supplies  to  a  very  large  extent 
our  banks  with  funds,  the  people  with  employment,  and  indi- 
rectly, though  not  the  less  emphatically,  our  factories  and  shops 
with  customers  for  their  fabrics;  it  sustains  countless  industries 
and  enterprises  all  along  the  wonderful  pathway  of  commerce 
from  prairie  to  port;  it  supplies  vessels  on  the  high  seas  and  the 
great  lakes  with  millions  of  tonnage. 

Our  214,000  miles  of  railways  are  in  largest  measure  sup- 
ported by  the  carriage  of  the  agricultural  products  of  the  great 
Valley  of  the  Mississippi  for  distribution  to  eastern  and  southern 
markets  both  for  domestic  consumption  and  for  export,  and  in 
turn  by  the  transportation  of  an  almost  endless  variety  of  manu- 
factures demanded  by  a  wonderful  and  pervading  agricultural 
prosperity. 

WEALTH    OF    FARM    PRODUCTS. 

The  agricultural  products  of  the  United  States  constitute 
the  lifeblood  of  our  inland  commerce  and  the  chief  factor  in  our 
foreign  trade;  they  lie  at  the  very  basis  of  our  commercial  and 
industrial  life.  The  rewards  of  the  agriculturist,  both  pecuniary 
and  economic,  are  the  legitimate  and  logical  result  of  an  enter- 
prising and  intelligent  industry  pursued  upon  a  generous  soil, 
under  the  inspiration  of  a  government  created  and  administered 
by  the  people.  Through  the  facilities  furnished  by  the  Chicago 
Board  of  Trade  and  kindred  organizations,  ready  money — inde- 
pendent of  existing  market  conditions,  such  as  an  immediate 
consumptive  demand  —  is  furnished  to  farmers  and  country 
dealers,  enabling  them  to  meet  promptly  their  varied  obligations 
incident  to  constantly  recurring  and  increasing  wants.  This 
money  circulates  without  interruption  through  the  arteries  of  our 
far-reaching  commercial  and  industrial  life  and  sustains  in  a  large 
degree  our  wholesale  trade  in  all  departments  of  business. 

nation's   great   asset. 
The  tangible  assets  of  the  United  States  are  not  in  Wall 
street  or  in  the  hands  of    money-holders  anywhere;    they   are 
found  in  our  agricultural  resources  made  available  for  the  com- 


XVI 

mon  welfare  by  skilled  labor  and  by  an  ambitious  and  public- 
spirited  citizenship.  This  is,  to  be  sure,  a  truism  of  political 
economy,  but  nevertheless,  in  view  of  recent  startling  and 
demoralizing  revelations  in  the  realms  of  finance,  there  is  need 
of  placing  upon  this  fact  special  emphasis,  and  of  giving  deserved 
prominence  to  those  great  commercial  organizations  whose 
primary  and. supreme  function  it  is  to  market  the  agricultural 
products  of  the  country;  to  bring  buyer  and  seller  together  on 
an  equitable  basis;  to  obtain  and  disseminate  valuable  economic 
information  concerning  the  grain  markets  of  the  world,  not  in 
the  interest  of  the  seller  or  of  the  buyer  exclusively,  but  in  order 
to  arrive  at  a  fair  price  upon  the  basis  of  the  world's  food  supply 
and  the  world's  food  needs.  All  this  information  is  given  by 
these  associations  to  the  public  without  charge.  No  agencies 
exert  a  more  beneficent  influence  upon  the  general  commercial 
and  industrial  welfare  than  do  the  grain,  produce  and  provision 
exchanges  of  the  United  States.  No  other  department  of  busi- 
ness is  subject  to  so  searching  and  so  severe  a  scrutiny  as  the 
business  conducted  under  the  rules  of  these  organizations;  no 
business  is  more  vitally  allied  to  the  various  industries  and  com- 
merce of  our  city  and  of  the  country.  These  institutions  repre- 
sent wealth  producers  and  not  wealth  manipulators. 

POWERS     THAT     ARE     INVOKED. 

Point  me  to  any  institution  or  department  of  business  that 
more  zealously  and  honorably  promotes  the  common  commercial 
and  industrial  welfare.  Boards  of  trade  marshal  the  forces  of 
individual  capacity,  the  resources  of  the  field  and  of  the  mine; 
they  call  forth  for  the  common  good  the  latent  forces  of  mind 
and  of  matter,  and  are  constantly  creating  facilities  for  the  saving 
of  time,  for  reducing  expenses  in  the  distribution  of  merchandise 
and  minimizing  risks  of  business  transactions;  they  study  and 
solve  the  problems  which  a  keen  and  educated  competition  pre- 
sents; they  take  a  wide  outlook  in  carrying  out  their  purposes, 
keeping  in  view  not  alone  one  market,  one  state  or  one  country, 
but  planning  and  legislating  for  a  world-wide  commerce. 

Nature  in  the  year  1905  extended  to  the  husbandman  a 
prodigal  hospitality.  The  estimates  of  the  Secretary  of  Agri- 
culture of  the  value  and  volume  of  the  crops  are  as  follows: 


xvn

HUGE    FARM    VALUES. 

Secretary  Wilson  reports  that  the  total  value  of  farm  pro- 
ducts for  the  last  year  was  $6,415,000,000,  and  that  "every 
sunset  during  the  last  five  years  has  registered  an  increase  of 
$3,400,000  in  the  value  of  the  farms  of  this  country,  and  every 
month  has  piled  this  value  upon  value  until  it  has  reached 
$102,000,000,000.  That  portion  of  the  national  debt  bearing 
interest  is  equaled  by  the  increased  value  of  farms  in  nine 
months,  and  the  increase  for  a  little  over  a  year  balances  the 
entire  interest  and  non-interest  bearing  debt  of  the  United 
States."  Farm  crops  have  never  before  been  harvested  at  such 
a  high  general  level  of  production  and  value. 

The  industries  of  the  United  States  utilizing  agricultural 
products  as  materials  employ  37  per  cent  of  all  the  persons 
engaged  in  manufacturing,  and  the  capital  of  these  industries  is 
42. 1  of  the  capital  of  all  manufacturing  establishments.

Some  instances  of  bankruptcy  have  occurred  as  the  results 
either  of  an  indisposition  or  an  inability  to  conform  to  modern 
business  methods.  With  the  exception  of  some  startling  reve- 
lations concerning  men  occupying  positions  of  trust,  the  year 
has  not  disclosed  any  marked  unfavorable  features. 

NOTABLE     DECISION    RENDERED. 

Thanks  to  the  efforts  of  our  attorney,  Henry  S.  Robbins, 
the  Supreme  Court  of  the  United  States  rendered  a  decision 
upholding  the  legality  of  our  future  or  time  trading,  our  clearing 
house,  our  system  of  settlement  by  offset,  and  sustaining  the 
Board  of  Trade's  property  right  in  its  quotations  and  enjoining 
their  use  in  bucketshops.  This  important  decision  is  the  result 
of  litigation  comprising  thirteen  suits  brought  by  bucketshops 
against  the  Board  and  twenty-six  suits  brought  by  the  Board 
against  purloiners  of  our  quotations. 

In  1902  a  large  number  of  injunction  suits  were  brought 
against  the  President  of  the  Board  and  others  to  enjoin  the 
signing  down  of  margins.  The  Supreme  Court  of  the  State  of 
Illinois  last  October  upheld  in  the  broadest  terms  the  validity  of 
our  margin  rule  and  ordered  that  the  injunction  suits  be  dissolved. 
Thus  was  brought  to  naught  the  persistent  and  protracted 
attempt  to  set  aside  the  rule  of  the  Board  providing  for  the 
indorsing  of  margin  certificates  in  case  of  dispute. 

In  litigation  covering  a  period  of  six  years  the  Board  has 
never  lost  a  case  in  a  court  of  last  resort. 

With  crops  unprecedented  in  volume  and  in  value,  with  a 
widespread   distribution  of  surplus  earnings^  with  a  prevailing 


XIX 


conservatism  in  business  affairs,  with  the  ban  of  the  law  on 
bucketshop  trading,  we  cross  the  threshold  of  the  new  year  with 
gratifying  prospects. 

The  following  is  a  statement  of  the  wheat  crop  of  the 
countries  named  from  1 901  to  1905,  inclusive,  furnished  by  the

^FOREIGN   CROP   REPORT. 

The  world's  wheat  crop  of  1905  is  estimated  by  the  Hun- 
garian Ministry  of  Agriculture  at  3,189,000,000  bushels  of  60 
pounds,  against  3,182,000,000  such  bushels  last  year. 

The  Hungarian  estimate  for  rye  is  1,539,000,000  bushels 
of  56  pounds,  against  1,815,000,000  such  bushels  last  year. 
The  decrease,  which  exceeds  1 5  per  cent,  is  attributed  chiefly 
to  the  large  deficiency  in  the  Russian  crop  of  this  grain.  Un- 
important as  is  the  place  that  rye  occupies  among  the  cereals 
cultivated  in  the  United  States,  it  is  by  no  means  unimportant 
as  a  part  of  the  world's  bread  supply  ;  nor  is  it  without  effect 
on  the  price  obtainable  for'  the  exportable  wheat  surplus  of  the 
United  States,  as  was  pointed  out  in  an  article  entitled  ' '  Influ- 
ence of  rye  on  the  price  of  wheat,"  published  in  the  Year  Book 
of  the  Department  of  Agriculture  for  1900,  If  the  wheat  and 
rye  crops  of  the  world,  as  estimated  by  the  Hungarian  Ministry 
of  Agriculture,  be  taken  together  and  expressed  in  centals  of 
100  pounds,  this  year's  estimate  for  the  two  great  bread  grains 
combined  will  be  found  to  be  about  5  }i  per  cent  below  the  esti- 
mate for  last  year.  The  following  are  the  Hungarian  estimates 
for  the  world's  crops  of  the  five  chief  cereals  for  this  year  and 
last,  expressed  in  milHons  of  bushels:

The  figures  on  the  wheat  and  rye  crops  have  already  been 
discussed.  Those  on  oats  and  barley  make  this  year's  crops 
smaller  than  those  of  1904,  the  decrease  being  8.4  per  cent  for 
the  former  and  nearly  5  per  cent  for  the  latter  cereal.  The 
corn  crop,  owing  to  the  fine  condition  of  that  grain  in  the  United 
States,  is  estimated  to  be  5.8  per  cent  larger  than  last  year's.

Ministry  of  Agriculture,  is  nearly  2.7  per  cent  less  than  that 
of  1904.

so  shipped  during  1904  ;  nearly  all  of  these  shipments  went  to 
Buffalo  and  thence  via  canal  or  rail  for  domestic  and  foreign 
consumption.

XXVIII 

bushels  received,  and  676,271  bushels  shipped  during  1904. 
This  trade  seems  to  be  gradually  diminishing  owing  to  a  variety 
of  causes,  chief  among  which  is  the  fact  that  its  cultivation  is 
every  year  growing  less  in  the  regions  tributary  to  this  market. 
Its  growth  is  exhausting  to  the  soil,  and  as  a  consequence  it  is 
mainly  raised  on  new.  and  virgin  lands.  A  detailed  statement 
may  be  found  of  monthly  receipts  and  shipments  for  the  year  on 
page  90  of  this  report.

Lakes,  the  balance  went  out  by  western  roads.  This  trade  is 
confined  to  a  limited  number  of  prominent  seed  concerns. 

The  receipts  of  lard  in  Chicago  during  the  year  aggregated

preferred  for  shipping  this  article  for  many  and  manifest  reasons. 
A  considerable  quantity  is  shipped  to  gulf  ports  for  export.

in  the  continental  markets,  and  shipments  are  made  with  great 
uniformity  throughout  the  year.

FOREIGN  TRADE. 

The  excess  of  our  exports  over  our  imports  during  the  year 
was,  in  value,  $401,048,595. 

The  foreign  commerce  of  the  United  States  in  merchandise 
during  the  year  ended  June  30,  1905,  quoting  from  the  Chief  of 
the  Bureau  of  Statistics  of  the  Department  of  Commerce  and 
Labor,  exceeded  both  in  imports  and  exports  that  of  any  earUer 

The  falling  off  in  the  exports  of  agricultural  products  and 
especially  wheat  and  wheat  flour,  continues  to  be  a  marked 
characteristic  of  the  export  trade . 

The  percentage  which  agricultural  products  formed  of  the 
total  domestic  exports,  was  in  1905,  but  55.03  per  cent,  against 
69.73  percent  in  1895,  72.96  percent  in  1885  and  76.95  per 
cent  in  1875. 

Comparing  1905  with  1895,  the  exports  of  manufactures 
shows  an  increase  of  practically  200  per  cent,  and  those  of 
mines,  forests  and  fisheries,  an  increase  of  more  than  100  per 
cent  each,  while  those  of  agriculture  have  increased  only  50 
per  cent  in  the  same  period. 

The  reductions  of  exports  of  wheat  and  flour  cannot  be 
charged  to  low  prices,  since  the  average  price  per  bushel  of 
wheat  exports  in  1905  was  higher  than  in  any  year  since  1898, 
and  the  average  price  per  barrel  of  flour  exported  was  higher 
than  in  any  year  since   1892. 

The  value  of  our  exports  amounted  to  $1,518,561,666, 
which  exceeded  by  57,734,395  the  value  of  our  exports  during 
the  preceding  year.  The  value  of  our  imports  and  exports  for 
the  year  amounted  to  $2,636,074,737.  The  total  value  of  all 
agricultural  products  during  the  last  fiscal  year  was  $820, 863,405, 
as  against  $853,643,073  exported  during  the  year  immediately 
preceding.  The  steady  decline  in  the  percentage  which  agricul- 
tural products  form  of  the  total  exports  is  due,  says  the  Secretary 
of  Agriculture,  to  the  increase  in  the  exports  of  other  products, 
especially  manufactures,  rather  than  to  any  material  decrease  in 
the  products  of  agriculture  as  a  whole. 

The  value  of  our  imports  of  merchandise  during  the  year 
amounted  to  $1,117,513,071. 


XXXVIII 


Our  exports  of  wheat  for  the  fiscal  year  ended  June  30, 
1905*  aggregated  4,394,402  bushels  valued  at  $3,905,579,  as 
against  44,230,169  bushels  valued  at  $35,850,318,  exported 
during  the  year  immediately  preceding,  and  1 14, 181,420  bushels, 
valued  at  $87,795,104,  exported  during  the  year  1903. 

Our  exports  of  corn  aggregated  88,807,223  bushels,  valued

To  the  Prendent  and  Board  of  Directors  of  the  Board  of  Trade

Gentlemen: 

In  accordance  with  the  instructions  of  the  Finance  Com- 
mittee, we  have  completed  a  careful  audit  of  the  Financial  Rec- 
ords of  the  Board  of  Trade  of  the  City  of  Chicago,  covering 
the  period  from  January  9,  1905,  to  January  8,  1906. 

All  the  records  in  the  cash  book,  journal  and  ledger  were 
proven  correct.  The  cash  balances  as  shown  in  the  hands  of 
your  Secretary  and  Treasurer  were  checked  and  proven  correct; 
also  the  Bonds  of  the  Board  amounting  to  $30,200. 

Vouchers,  properly  approved  by  the  Finance  and  Real 
Estate  Committees,  were  presented  for  all  cash  payments. 

We  also  certify  that  the  foregoing  report  is  correct  in  accord- 
ance with  the  records  audited. 

Respectfully  submitted, 

EVERETT  AUDIT  CO. 


XLm 

At  the  close  of  the  fiscal  year  ended  on  the  8th  day  of  Jan- 
uary, 1906,  there  were  no  bills  outstanding.  Cash  on  hand,  as 
per  financial  statement  hereinbefore  submitted,  exclusive  of 
$16,803.20  standing  to  the  credit  of  the  Board  on  the  books  of 
the  telegraph  companies,  was  $170,221,86.  In  addition,  the 
Board  has  $30, 200  of  Board  of  Trade  4  per  cent  bonds  stand- 
ing at  par  value.  This  is  merely  an  investment  and  not  a  can- 
cellation of  the  bonds.  At  the  close  of  the  fiscal  year  the  9th 
of  January,  1905,  the  amount  of  cash  on  hand,  exclusive  of  the 
amount  in  the  hands  of  telegraph  companies,  was  $150,499.18, 
or  $11,722.68  less  than  the  amount  brought  down  at  the  close 
of  the  fiscal  year,  January  8,  1906.  At  the  close  of  the  fiscal 
year  ended  on  January  4,  1904,  cash  on  hand  amounted  to  $47,- 
274.71;  on  the  5th  day  of  January,  1903,  $19,411.82,  on  the 
6th  day  of  January,  1902,  $10,815.04. 

The  bonded  indebtedness  of  the  Board  is  $1,240,000,  due  in 
the  year  1927,  bearing  4  per  cent  interest,  payable  on  the  first 
day  of  June  and  the  first  day  of  December  of  each  year. 

REAL  ESTATE. 

Disbursements  on  real  estate  account,  exclusive  of  construc- 
tion, interest  and  insurance,  amouted  to  $57,179.76,  as  against 
$59,637.08  expended  during  the  preceding  fiscal  year,  and  $66,- 
047.43  during  the  year  ended  January  4,  1904. 

The  amount  expended  for  construction  during  the  year  last 
past  was  $13,966. 12. 

The  total  amount  of  expenditures,  including  construction, 
amounted  to  $72,532.94. 

Deducting  the  amount  expended  for  construction,  the  ex- 
penditures, including  insurance,  amounted  to  $58,566.82,  as 
against  $60,902.62   for  like  expenditures  during  the  year  1904. 

Amount  received  from  rentals,  janitor  service  and  electric 
lights,  $134,688.37,  as  against  $135,539.48  received  during  the 
preceding  fiscal  year,  and  $133,319.09  received  during  the  fiscal 
year  ended  January  4,  1904,  and  $129,253.59  received  during 
the  fiscal  year  ended  January  5,  1903. 

Under  the  city  ordinance  limiting  the  Board  to  100  pounds 
pressure  for  steam  boilers,  it  was  necessary  to  rebuild  one  of  our 
old  engines  and  to  purchase  a  new  one. 


XLIV  j   ■  -..,^.._ 

We  have  installed  one  new  passenger  elevator  and  have  three 
others  nearly  completed. 

The  basement  of  the  building  heretofore  bringing  no  revenue 
to  the  Board  has  been  made  available  by  renting  a  large  space 
for  a  restaurant  at  a  good  rental.  The  alterations  necessary  for 
its  use  as  which  was  paid  by  the  Lakota  Catering  Co. 

The  pro  rata  amount  assessed  by  the  Board  of  Directors  to 
meet  the  ordinary  expenditures  of  the  Association  for  the  ensu- 
ing year  is  $50. 

The  membership  of  the  Board  on  the  9th  day  of  January, 
1906,  numbered  1,774. 

The  number  of  memberships  transferred  during  the  year  was 
162,  yielding  $4,050. 

There  were  five  memberships  retired  during  the  year,  and  on 
account  of  same  was  paid  $14,900. 

The  following  members  were  expelled  from  the  Board:  Earl 
H.  Prince,  Amos  G.  McCampbell,  E.  A.  Rang,  Abraham  Lazerus 
and  Harry  F.  May  dwell. 

The  clearances  of  the  Clearing  House  of  the  Board  of  Trade 
of  the  City-of  Chicago  during  the  fiscal  year  last  passed  amounted 
to  $56,749,345.50  and  balances  $19,369, 168.01,  as  against  $99, - 
101,957.50  and  $31,999,278.69,  respectively,  during  the  fiscal 
year  ended  January  9,  1905. 

GRAIN  SAMPLING  AND  SEED  INSPECTION 
DEPARTMENT. 
The  Grain  Sampling  and  Seed  Inspection  Department  has 
more  than  justified  its  establishment.  It  has  received  the  en- 
dorsement and  commendation  not  only  of  the  members  of  the 
Board,  but  also  of  grain  dealers  generally,  both  east  and  west. 
One  of  the  most  important  features  of  this  department  is  its  co- 
operation with  the  State  Grain  Inspection  Department,  with  the 
object  of  securing  a  greater  uniformity  in  the  inspection  of  grain, 
and  of  conferring,  as  it  might  seem  desirable,  with  the  Chief 
Inspector  of  Grain  in  view  of  correcting  any  inaccuracies  or  irreg- 
ularities in  the  inspection  of  grain  that  may  be  brought  to  the 
attention  of  the  department.  The  State  Grain  Inspection  De- 
partment has  acted  in  harmony  with  the  Board,  and  as  a  conse- 
quence, the  inspection  of  grain  in  this  market  is  more  uniform 
and  reliable  than  before. 


XI.V 


During  the  year  the  department  has  sampled  78,097  cars  of 
grain  and  19,693,590  bushels  for  lake  shipment. 

WEIGHING  DEPARTMENT. 

The  Weighing  Department  has  maintained  its  reputation  for 
efficiency  and  reliability.  It  still  stands  at  the  head  of  the  grain 
weighing  departments  of  the  United  States.  Our  Weighmaster, 
Mr.  H.  A.  Foss,  has  frequently  been  called  upon  to  inaugurate 
his  system  of  weighing  in  other  markets.  The  high  standing  of 
the  department  is  owing  to  the  fidelity  and  accuracy  with  which 
its  entire  work,  even  to  the  minutest  detail,  is  performed.  The 
certificates  of  the  department  are  relied  upon  without  question 
in  both  domestic  and  foreign  markets.  Its  reputation,  there- 
fore, is  not  only  national  but  international.  The  number  of 
cars  weighed  during  the  year  was  321,615;  the  number  of 
bushels  weighed  to  and  from  vessels  was  79,966, 33 1 ;  the  number 
of  bags  of  seed  weighed  was  33,748.  The  department  is  now 
weighing  at  all  Chicago  elevators.  The  total  quantity  of  grain 
weighed  by  the  department  was  450,000,000  bushels,  of  which 
370,000,000  were  transported  by  cars  and  the  balance  by  lake 
craft.  This  shows  a  net  increase  of  14,910,770  bushels  in 
vessel  trade  for  the  year,  and  a  net  increase  of  41,925  in  the 
number  of  cars  weighed. 

TRANSPORTATION  DEPARTMENT. 

The  report  of  the  Transportation  Department  abundantly 
justifies  its  organization  and  continuance. 

Its  results  for  the  year  may  be  summarized  as  follows: 

The  first  result  accomplished  was  the  restoration  of  Chicago 
as  a  basing  point.  On  the  6th  of  February,  1905,  the  so-called 
Mississippi  River  prorate  to  seaboard  territory  was  abolished  and 
all  grain  rates  were  made  on  Chicago.  This  not  only  did  away 
with  the  necessity  of  tying  up  funds  in  excess  of  freight  charges, 
amounting  in  some  individual  cases  from  $50,000  to  $80,000  at 
a  time  and  which  was  a  burden  on  the  trade  generally,  but  it 
also  removed  the  cause  of  other  evils  which  were  the  outgrowth 
of  the  former  basis  of  adjustment. 

Rates  from  Minneapolis  and  the  Northwest,  which  were 
formerly  ic  to  4^c  per  100  lbs.  against  Chicago,  were  equitably 
adjusted  by  change  in  the   rate  schedule  to  both  Chicago  and 


Minneapolis,  also  to  Duluth  and  Gladstone,    likewise  rates  out 
of  Minneapolis. 

This  was  accomplished,  with  the  co-operation  of  the  Min- 
neapolis Chamber  of  Commerce,  after  a  period  of  negotiation 
with  interested  railways  lasting  some  months,  and  effective  July 
17,  1905,  an  adjustment  was  agreed  to  that  placed  this  market 
on  an  equality  in  the  Northwest.  There  is  now  no  discrimination 
against  the  Chicago  gateway  from  this  territory  on  through 
business  from  the  country  direct  or  from  and  via  Minneapolis,  all 
rail.  There  has  also  been  accorded  us  transit  privileges  from 
Minneapolis. 

ILLINOIS   MATTERS. 

A  number  of  changes  in  rates  and  methods  have  been 
obtained  from  the  railways,  some  of  which  while  possibly  of 
minor  importance,  yet  in  the  aggregate  are  of  value  to  the  trade. 

The  Chicago  &  Eastern  Illinois  Railroad  formerly  charged  a 
penalty  of  one  cent  per  100  lbs.  in  its  through  tariffs  to  the 
East  on  grain  routed  via  Chicago.  This  premium  was  removed 
in  May  last,  placing  Chicago  on  a  parity  with  interior  junctions. 
The  one  cent  per  100  lbs.  in  excess  of  the  local  rate  charged  by 
this  road  on  all  grain  going  into  transit  account,  making  an 
additional  and  unnecessary  investment  until  the  grain  could  be 
cleared,  was  removed  January  2,  1906. 

Through  export  rates  from  Illinois  Central  and  Chicago  & 
Alton,  in  lieu  of  applying  the  domestic  basis  on  export  grain, 
were  reinstated. 

The  application  of  all-rail  earnings  instead  of  full  local  rates 
up  to  Chicago  on  grain  cleared  by  lake,  and  the  removal  of  the 
penalty  charge  from  Chicago  &  Alton  stations  on  grain  for  transit, 
were  changes  for  the  better  granted  by  the  roads  named. 

RECONSIGNING   CHARGE. 

All  receivers  are  familiar  with  this  charge  which,  one  road  at 
a  time,  is  being  gradually  eliminated.  Some  of  the  lines  have 
voluntarily  canceled  it  within  the  last  two  or  three  years,  and 
within  the  past  four  months  we  have  induced  four  other  roads 
to  abolish  the  practice,  leaving  only  two  lines  at  this  writing 
who  are  assessing  the  tax.

RATES  TO  SOUTHEASTERN  TERRITORY. 

At  present,  through  a  peculiar  view  taken  by  southern  Hnes, 
this  market  is  prohibited,  unless  at  a  penalty  of  from  4)^  to  6 
cents  per  100  lbs.,  from  competing  with  our  neighbors  in 
handling  Iowa,  Wisconsin,  Minnesota  and  Dakotas  grain  in  the 
southeastern  market;  in  fact,  this  embargo  also  obtains  on  Illi- 
nois grain  moving  through  Chicago. 

The  justification  for  this  discrimination,  malicious  in  charac- 
ter if  not  in  intent,  so  far  has  not  been  made  clear.  Efforts  to 
remove  the  discrimination,  which  from  expressions  of  opinion 
and  in  some  cases  of  intentions  by  certain  railway  interests 
involved,  have  not  been  in  vain  and  point  to  a  satisfactory  solu- 
tion placing  Chicago  in  position  to  compete  in  its  own  natural 
territory. 

Changes  in  the  south  preliminary  to  those  necessary  north  of 
the  Ohio  River  have  been  made,  furnishing  a  base  from  which 
we  can  work,  _ 

SUMMARY. 

In  our  efforts  with  the  railways  to  remove  these  irregularities, 
in  some  cases  necessitating  an  almost  complete  change  of  rate 
schedules,  we  have  aimed  to  make  our  work  constructive  rather 
than  destructive;  to  accomplish  the  greatest  good  with  the  least 
sacrifice,  having  in  mind  the  rights  of  competing  sections  and 
the  obligations  of  carriers  thereto. 

We  have  been  met  in  a  broad  spirit  by  the  transportation 
companies  in  the  discussion  of  the  matters  brought  before  them. 
Results  have  been  obtained  by  mutual  concessions  and  not  by 
drastic  means.  While  opinions  differ,  as  they  have  and  always 
will,  as  to  the  most  effective  methods,  we  have  seen  no  differ- 
ences strong  enough  to  discourage  in  the  work  before  us. 

All  of  these  questions  and  more  yet  unsolved  are  but  parts  of 
the  main  idea  in  view — to  make  Chicago  a  basing  point  in  fact 
instead  of  in  theory. 

Many  other  matters  have  been  handled  by  the  department, 
but  only  those  of  leading  interest  have  been  presented. 

LEGAL   DEPARTMENT. 

The  present  year  closes  an  unusually  active  and  important 
period  in  our  legal  affairs.     Despite  the  failure  of  prior  similar 


XL  VIII 


efforts,  this  Board,  about  six  years  ago,  at  the  suggestion  of  its 
attorney,  embarked  upon  a  new  plan  to  deprive  the  bucketshops 
of  our  quotations.  This  consisted  in  estabhshing  in  law  a  prop- 
erty right  in  our  quotations  and  securing  the  protection  thereof 
from  purloiners  through  writs  of  injunction.  It  also  contem- 
plated making  the  quotations  a  source  of  substantial  revenue. 

At  that  time  the  Western  Union  and  Postal  Telegraph  Com- 
panies were,  under  licenses  from  this  Board  and  without  charge, 
collecting  the   quotations  upon   our  exchange   floor,  and   there 
were  then  outstanding  four  injunctions,  which  in  effect  restrained 
the   Board  from   ousting  them.     As  soon  as  our  plan  was  dis- 
closed,  three  more   like   injunctions  were  added.      By  July   i, 
1900,  we  had  succeeded  in  dissolving  these,  and  in  dispossessing 
the  telegraph  companies,  and  were,  through  our  own  employes, 
collecting  the  quotations.      Contracts  denying  the  quotations  to 
bucketshops  were  then  demanded  by  the  Board  from  the  tele- 
graph companies.     The  two  larger  telegraph  companies  refused 
to  sign  such  a  contract,  and  on  August  i,    1900,  ceased  to  dis- 
tribute the  quotation.      Finding,  however,  that  this  Board  was 
in  earnest,  they  finally  did  so,   and  on  April  15,  1901,  resumed 
the  distribution  of  our  quotations,  and  thereafter  gave  them  only 
to  such  applicants  as  this  Board,    after  investigation,  found  not 
to  be  bucketshops. 

The  bucketshops,  not  being  able  to  obtain  them  from  the 
telegraph  companies,  then  began  stealing  the  quotations,  and 
thereby  an  illicit  trade  therein  arose. 

To  stop  this  the  Board  commenced  numerous  suits  in  the 
Federal  Courts  of  the  Central  West,  In  defense  of  these  suits 
the  bucketshops  not  only  denied  the  existence  of  any  property 
right  in  the  quotations  and  the  right  of  the  courts  to  protect  it 
by  injunction,  but  attacked  the  legality  of  our  transactions,  out 
of  which  the  quotations  arose.  This  gave  rise,  especially  upon 
the  last  question,  to  a  marked  conflict  of  decisions  by  the  differ- 
ent Federal  Courts. 

Thereupon  the  United  States  Supreme  Court  ordered  two  of 
these  cases  before  it  for  review.  Its  decision  last  May  was  a 
sweeping  and  far-reaching  one  in  our  favor.  It  established  not 
only  the  legality  of  our  future  or  time-trading,  our  clearing  house, 
and  our  system  of  settlement  by  off-set  or   "ringing,"  but  also 


XLIX 


decided  that  our  quotations  were  a  species  of  property  which 
should  be  protected  by  injunctions.  It  also  afi&rmed  the  legality 
of  our  contracts  with  the  telegraph  companies  respecting  the 
quotations  which  had  been  attacked  as  an  illegal  restraint  upon 
trade. 

This  litigation  comprised  thirteen  suits  by  bucketshops 
against  our  Board  or  the  telegraph  companies  distributing  our 
quotations,  and  twenty-six  suits  brought  by  our  Board  against 
purloiners  of  our  quotations.  This  litigation  has  been  in  twenty- 
five  different  courts  and  in  thirteen  cities  in  ten  different  states. 

All  of  these  cases  have  been  finally  disposed  of,  except  seven, 
which  are  still  pending.  In  none  of  these  cases  has  the  Board 
lost.  The  cases  still  pending  will  ultimately,  without  much 
further  expense,  be  decided  in  favor  of  the  Board. 

In  these  cases  permanent  injunctions  haye  already  been  issued 
in  favor  of  the  Board  against  179  persons,  and  temporary 
injunctions,  in  cases  still  pending,  against  18  persons,  restrain- 
ing them,  either  as  principal  or  agent,  or  as  an  officer  of  any 
corporation,  from  obtaining  or  using  our  quotations  or  any  of 
them,  or  having  a  telegraph  or  other  wire  running  into  his  or  its 
office  over  which  our  quotations  are  passing,  and  from  aiding  or 
abetting,  directly  or  indirectly,  any  other  person  in  so  doing, 
unless  the  persons  thus  enjoined,  or  their  principal  or  corpora- 
tion, shall  have  first  lawfully  acquired  the  quotations  in  the 
manner  provided  by  our  contract  with  the  telegraph  companies 
distributing  them.  The  names  of  those  thus  permanently 
enjoined  are  ;

Our  legal  expenses  in  this  litigation,  including  court  costs, 
stenographers,  printing,  etc.,  fees  of  our  regular  attorney,  and 
of  sundry  lawyers  necessarily  employed  as  local  counsel  in  other 
cities,  for  these  six  years  have  aggregated  $87,354.00,  or  an 
average  of  $14, 559.00  per  year. 

The  total  revenue  of  the  Board  of  Trade  from  its  quota- 
tions since  April  15,  1901  (including  $16,000.00  still  in  the  hands 
of  the  telegraph  companies),  aggregates  $191,519.54.  Our 
revenue  from  the  quotations  at  the  present  time  is  about 
$40,000.00  per  year. 

As  a  result  of  this  litigation,  we  are  now  in  a  position  to 
obtain,  at  comparatively  small  expense,  injunctions  against  any 
one  found  to  be  using  our  quotations  without  our  approval.  In 
other  words,  the  plan  inaugurated  by  the  Board  nearly  six  years 
ago  has  received  the  judicial  sanction  of  the  highest  court  in  the 
land,  and  has  been  demonstrated  to  be  a  practical  one  to  control 
our  quotations,  as  well  as  to  derive  a  large  revenue  therefrom. 

During  these  six  years  we  have  also  emerged  successfully 
from  other  very  important  litigation,  involving  the  charter 
powers  of  our  Board. 

During  that  period  a  rule  has  been  adopted  (and  enforced) 
providing  minimum  rates  of  commissions,  and  for  the  expulsion 
of  any  member  violating  it.  A  member  was  expelled  under  it 
and  appealed  to  the  court  to  reinstate  him  upon  the  ground  that 
this  rule  was  illegal  because  a  restraint  upon  trade.  The  Circuit 
Court  (Judge  Baker)  upheld  the  validity  of  this  rule,  and  our 
charter  power  to  pass  it,  and  this  was  affirmed  in  the  Appellate 
Court  in  a  decision,  which,  we  believe,  places  our  commission 
rule  beyond  danger  of  further  attack. 

In  1902  a  large  number  of  injunction  suits  were  brought 


IiH 


against  the  President  of  the  Board  and  others  to  enjoin  the 
signing  down  of  margins  upon  the  ground  that  the  part  of  the 
margin  rule  which  compels  parties,  in  case  of  dispute,  to  accept 
the  decision  of  the  margin  committee,  was  illegal  and  beyond 
the  charter  power  of  the  Board  to  enact.  The  Superior  Court 
(Judge  Chytraus)  so  decided,  as  did  the  Appellate  Court  (Judges 
Ball,  Adams  and  Windes).  But  upon  appeal,  the  Supreme 
Court  of  Illinois  last  October  upheld  in  the  broadest  terms  the 
validity  of  this  rule  and  this  charter  power  of  the  Board. 

During  these  years  the  following  members,  Frank  D. 
Riordan,  Arthur  R.  Jones,  Michael  J,  Ryan,  Portus  B.  Weare, 
Charles  A.  Weare,  William  E.  Dodson,  William  E.  McHenry, 
and  Louis  G.  Bostedo,  have  applied  to  the  courts  to  prevent 
being  disciplined,  or  seeking  reinstatement,  but  in  all  these  cases 
the  right  of  this  Board  to  discipline  its  members  for  violation  of 
its  rules  has  been  upheld.  Appeals  have  been  taken  by 
McHenry,  Dodson  and  Bostedo,  and  are  now  pending  in  the 
Appellate  Court. 

Sundry  other  suits  of  lesser  importance,  such  as  actions  for 
damages  brought  by  expelled  members  against  directors,  credit- 
ors' bills  to  reach  memberships,  etc.,  have  been  disposed  of 
favorably  to  the  Board. 

Our  only  reverse  during  these  years  was  in  the  appeal  of 
the  Weare  Commission  Company  case  to  the  Supreme  Court,  in 
which  we  sought  to  have  that  court  recall  its  early  decision  in 
the  Soby  case  in  1890,  to  the  effect  that  the  Illinois  bucketshop 
statute  was  intended  to  include  offices  of  our  members,  or  of 
correspondents  of  our  members.  In  this  we  were  unsuccessful, 
and  we  should  continue  our  efforts  to  correct  this  injustice  by 
legislation. 

The  litigation  now  pending  consists  of  the  three  appeals  by 
Bostedo,  Dodson  and  McHenry,  above  referred  to,  and  six  suits 
brought  by  the  Board  (at  Cincinnati,  Detroit,  Chicago,  St.  Louis 
and  Minneapolis)  against  purloiners  of  its  quotations. 

There  are  also  pending  five  bills,  in  the  nature  of  creditors' 
suits,  against  members  of,  and,  this  Board,  with  a  view  to  reach- 
ing their  memberships. 

There  are  also  two  actions  brought  by  Charles  Waite  and 
Robert  H.  Thorburn,  respectively,   against  the  former  directors 


liHl 

of  this  Board,  for  damages  claimed  by  reason  of  the  action  of 
our  directors. 

Also  a  suit  brought  by  Emma  Taylor  against  the  Board  of 
Trade  and  others  for  damages  for  alleged  malicious  prosecution 
in  a  criminal  suit. 

The  Quotation  Department  of  the  Board  evolved  by  the 
plan  instituted  for  the  purpose  of  controlling  our  quotations  is  a 
source  of  substantial  profit  to  the  Board  and  will  undoubtedly 
continue  so  to  be. 

The  report  of  the  Legal  Department  sets  forth  in  detail  the 
history  of  the  Board's  litigation  for  about  six  years  and  presents 
an  exceptional  and  a  gratifying  showing.  The  charter  of  the 
Board  and  its  rules  and  regulations  have  received  the  sanction 
of  the  highest  courts  of  the  land, 

The  financial  condition  of  the  Board,  as  shown  by  its 
detailed  financial  statement,  is  exceedingly  satisfactory. 

The  Board  of  Directors  recommends  that  it  be  authorized 
to  cancel  the  bonds  now  in  its  possession  and  also  to  purchase  at 
its  discretion,  during  the  coming  year,  further  bonds  of  the 
Board,  and  to  cancel  the  same,  thus  reducing  our  bonded 
indebtedness  and  the  annual  amount  paid  for  interest.  We 
believe  that  such  a  course  is  founded  upon  sound  business  prin- 
ciples ;  and  that  every  year  an  appropriation  out  of  the  revenues 
of  the  Board  should  be  made  for  the  reduction  of  its  bonded 
indebtedness. 

It  is  the  pleasure  of  the  directory  to  announce  the  success- 
ful culmination  of  its  vital  legal  questions  that  were  pending,  as 
shown  in  the  decision  of  the  Supreme  Court  of  the  United  States 
establishing  the  Board's  right  to  its  quotations  and  in  denying 
them  to  objectionable  parties ;  and  also  its  right  to  maintain 
injunctions  against  those  persons  or  concerns  using  such  quota- 
tions for  illegitimate  purposes,  such  concerns  being  known  as 
bucketshops.  This  important  decision  maintains  the  legality  of 
our  system  of  trading  for  future  delivery,  mode  of  settlement  by 
offset  as  provided  under  our  rules  and  of  the  Clearing  House  of 
the  Board. 

The  recent  decision  of  the  Supreme  Court  of  the  State  of 
Illinois  upholds  the  margin  rule  of  the  Board  and  the  procedure 
for  the  endorsement  of  margins  in  case  of  dispute  as  set  forth 


LIV 

in  said  rule.  The  Board  of  Trade  occupies  a  standing  in  the 
courts  which  renders  it  unnecessary  to  expend  large  sums  of 
money  for  legal  expenses  in  the  future. 

Among  those  who  have  passed  away  during  the  year  was 
Charles  D.  Hamill,  President  of  the  Board  during  the  eventful 
years  in  the  history  of  the  Association  of  1892  and  1893.  ^^ 
was  during  those  years  that  the  persistent  attempt  was  made  to 
pass  the  Hatch  and  Washburn  bills  that  sought  to  overthrow  the 
system  of  buying  and  selling  for  future  delivery,  which  has  since 
been  upheld  by  the  Supreme  Court  of  the  United  States. 
Largely  by  Mr.  Hamill's  tact  and  influence  the  disaster  which 
those  measures  threatened  was  averted. 

Mr.  Hamill  was  a  prominent  merchant,  Director  of  the  Art 
Institute,  a  Trustee  of  the  Chicago  Orchestra,  and  served  this 
Board  as  its  accomplished  President,  endearing  himself  in  a 
special  sense  to  the  officers  and  members  of  this  Association  by 
his  unswerving  integrity,  his  unfailing  courtesy,  his  wise  counsel 
— all  adorned  by  a  rare  and  charming  personality. 

The  list  also  includes  the  name  of  Lewis  B.  Mitchell. 

Major  Mitchell  served  with  distinction  and  gallantry  in  the 
great  war  for  the  preservation  of  the  Union,  and  he  leaves 
behind  him  a  record  both  as  a  soldier  and  a  civilian  that  reflects 
honor  upon  his  country.  He  was  richly  endowed  with  a  native 
refinement  of  manner  and  of  speech  ;  cordial  and  courteous  in 
his  bearing;  charitable  in  his  judgment  of  his  fellowmen  ;  modest 
in  his  demeanor,  and  always  loyal  to  justice  and  uprightness  in 
public  and  in  private  life. 

The  Board  mourns  his  loss  and  records  his  name  among  the 
names  of  its  heroes  who  in  the  dark  days  bravely  fought  under 
the  flag  of  the  Republic.

Note.— Up  to  1850  only  the  aggregate  valuations  in  the  several  counties  were  reported  to 
the  State  officers,  and  from  1853  to  1857,  inclusive,  a  few  counties  returned  only  the  aggregates ; 
hence  the  details  of  real  estate  and  personal  property  valuations  are  not  complete  for  those 
years.  In  1867  and  1868  the  details  of  valuation  are  not  entirely  correct,  owing  to  changes  by  the 
operation  of  the  equalization  law.  Since  1868  the  valuations  are  as  equalized.  The  total  valua- 
tions in  each  of  the  several  years  are  correct  and  official. 

The  valuations  for  1873  as  equalized  are  largely  in  excess  of  any  previous  year.  In  1874 
some  changes  were  made  in  the  manner  of  equalizing  the  assessments,  resulting  in  reducing  all 
the  valuations,  especially  those  of  railroad  property. 

The  valuations  for  1899  and  subsequent  years  are  the  one-fifth  of  the  full  fair  cash  valua- 
tions of  property  as  determined  by  the  Assessing  officers,  under  the  requirements  of  the  Assess- 
ment Act  of  1898. 

The  State  debt,  as  noted,  represents  it  as  it  stood  on  the  1st  of  January  in  each  of  the 
several  years  to  1869 ;  in  1869  and  1870,  as  it  stood  December  I;  in  1871,  as  it  stood  December  31 ; 
from  1873  to  1879,  as  it  stood  December  1.
